Danish: En stor og kraftig Porter med en umiskendelig og lækker kaffearoma. En blød og lækker øl, selvom den med sine knap 10 % er en kraftig herre. Både Cascade og Simcoe skinner fint igennem de ristede elementer og blander sig dejligt med den ristede aroma og kaffen.

English: It’s a beer that’s been thought about for quite some time – actually since the brewers first visit to Sherbrooke Liquor in Edmonton, AB, Canada a few years back, and finally I did it – I manned up and did it! After a whole freaking day of brewing coffee for this beer I can truly say it is Craft. If not devoted to the product who in their right mind would brew hundreds of litres of coffee for a beer? The result is a big and bold smooth Porter with discrete vanilla and coffee notes.
Hops: Magnum, Nelson Sauvin Malts: Pilsner, Caramel, Rye, Oats, Chocolate, Black, Vanilla and coffee.

Douberd (4914) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2014
(Ugly Duck Imperial Vanilla Coffee Porter) Bottle 330 ml, from a trade with humlelala, thanks! Served into a snifter ABV 10% Black colour on the body with a full finger of thick, beige head, with very good retention. Medium lacing on the glass. Aroma has tons of coffee, roasted malts, light vanilla, some alcohol after a deep sniff, some hops. Really great taste, again lots of coffee, lots of roasted malts, alcohol present but without any burning, on the contrary compliments the beer, much more vanilla now. Medium thick body, soft carbonation, smooth and creamy feeling on the palate. Very good!

Very nice Vanilla smell which make it promising. No foam. Short in taste. But quite ordinary and flat.

Opaque black with a tinge of brown. Practically no head on this beer. Aroma is malts and liquorice. Taste is vanilla, chocolate milkshake and slightly bitter. Well balanced and has a good body. Reminds me of a choco milkshake somewhat. 33cl bottle

Beergaard (307) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2014
Nice dark brown/black color and a sticky light brown head. Aroma of bitter coffee, dried fruit, alcohol, chocolate and vanilla - just a bit more vanilla would have been nice though. Quite creamy mouthfeel, loads of bitter roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla and some hops. Very good beer indeed

Hubster (59) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2014
En god øl. Kaffen er meget markant, men heldigvis god kaffe. Både malt og humle er fremtrædende. En aroma af kaffe, lakrids, vanilje, mørk chokolade, tørret frugt. En godt humlet porter.
